Heavy equipment and machinery are the cornerstone of a lot of major construction projects, providing power and functionality that help get the job done faster and safer for everyone involved. Of course, in order to ensure you have the right equipment that can tackle anything you throw at it, it is crucial to choose products that are made to last and have impressive features overall. The Bell Trucks B30E articulated dump truck (ADT) is a fantastic combination of power, precision, and technology that keeps you in control at all times.

There are several different ADT models available from Bell Trucks, with the B30E coming in at the lower end, making it a great choice if you need more than a 20-ton truck to get the job done. The Bell Trucks B30E offers impressive performance, however, thanks to a powerful Mercedes-Benz engine and updated technology that makes it easy to use and provides you with data about its performance in order to help boost productivity. And after this, whether you know exactly what you need or you still have a lot of questions, here at Quality Fleet Service, our experienced and knowledgeable salespeople are ready to help alongside our world-class service facility. Visit us at Quality Fleet Service to see how we can help support you and your business. But first, more about the Bell E series and the B30E.

The Bell E Series of Trucks

The Bell E Series, which includes the Bell Trucks B30E, features some of the most impressive trucks we have ever seen, including a number of truly fantastic features. For example, every model in the E Series is powered by a Mercedes-Benz engine and has an Allison transmission to ensure easy use and optimal performance. These trucks all have onboard weighing, providing the truck operator and others with load weight information in real-time, so you do not have to worry about accidental overloading.

The Bell E Series of trucks also includes some excellent safety features, including a safe tip function that prevents lifting of the rear bin if the rear chassis roll exceeds a pre-set value. A rear suspension ensures excellent overall performance while keeping the rear wheels on the ground, and all six-wheel models in the Bell E Series feature permanent six-wheel drive. You can set speed control limits on these trucks to ensure safety on-site, and an automatic parking brake and hill assist feature can help prevent uncontrolled movement on slopes.

One of the most impressive features in the Bell E Series is the [email protected] function that ensures you always know what is going on with your trucks. This is a computer system that tracks data about your truck performance and use, sending that information to you so you can read it on your phone, tablet, or computer. This way, both the operator of your Bell Trucks B30E ADT and you or your site manager can see what is happening and make sure the truck is being used safely and properly. This can help boost overall efficiency on a job site, as well as notify you of operator error or machine abuse, and provide you with an error code if a problem occurs.

About the Bell Trucks B30E

The Bell Trucks B30E is on the lighter end of the Bell E Series lineup, near the middle but still not as large or powerful as a number of models they offer. This makes it the perfect option if you have a lot of weight you need to haul, but not enough to justify a massive, 50-ton truck. The Bell Trucks B30E ADT is powered by a 7.7L Mercedes-Benz engine that delivers up to 329 hp and up to 958 lb-ft of torque for tremendous performance at your worksite.

This model has a bin with a struck capacity of 18.3 cu.yd. with an SAE 2:1 capacity of nearly 23 cu.yd. and a 1:1 capacity of just over 27 cu.yd. It has a rated payload of more than 61,000 lbs with a dumping system that raises in 14.5 seconds, lowers in 7.5 seconds, and features a 70-degree standard tipping angle, which can be programmed at a lower angle when needed. If you need greater or lower capacities, then there are a number of other Bell E Series trucks available, but for a lot of people, this is a perfect range that has just what you need without going overboard.
